Hear them all on my site - http://top100singles.blogspot.com/2011/04/my-top-singles-of-1972.html
"(Was not able to do a full top 100 for this year)"

You couldn't even do a Top 20!

All your 70's Years have less then 50.
Actually, if you bothered to look properly, 1977, 1978 and 1979 are all more than 50 singles.

I think I've done well to find as many songs as I have for these early/mid 70s years since those years all predate me. Looking forward to your much more complete 70s lists Lifter. Hahaha. Oh well, at least someone finally commented on one of my 70's lists, even if it was total negative.
I actually didn't re check the other Years at all. Was an unlucky guess.
But I knew they all had less then 100. Unable to comment on the tracks themselves since I don't know them.
Hehe. I'd imagine your lists would be even smaller then. ;P
Much smaller!
Woah #8 you two ...
I've added an AMR Top Singles of 1972 list to my site.

Hear them all here - http://top100singles.blogspot.com/2011/08/amr-top-singles-of-1972.html
In an attempt to determine the site members' favourite AMR/ARIA Top 100 charting songs of each year (and eventually of all time), I'd like to start calculating scores for every song from submitted lists. Simply post an ordered list of any size you like, containing only songs from the eligible songs list below. Your list can be changed at any time.

A song is only eligible for one yearly list and it is always the year in which the song debuted in the AMR/ARIA Top 100 Singles chart with the following exceptions...

- If the song debuted more than 2 years after release then the release year is chosen.
- If the song does not enter the Top 50 in its first chart run but re-enters the charts the following year and makes the Top 50 then that year is chosen.
